A Demon Within

Synopsis: A teenage girl and her mom think Crestwick will be a great place for them to have a new beginning but little do they know, the house they are moving into has been plagued by an evil demon known as Nefas dating back into the 1800's. Nefas has fed on the souls of innocent young girls and now has a new target. In order to save this teenage girl and her mother, a skeptical, small town doctor is forced to confront his own demons before another girl suffers a gruesome fate in his family's old house. The film was inspired from real events from the 1870's and has been updated to give a fresh perspective on possession and the pure evil that Nefas has been known to bring.

Omnes in infernis arderet.

Ipsum non protest salvum.

Strap her down!

Lay the salt line

round the table.

We cannot let it escape.

In the name of the father, son,

and holy spirit,

I call upon nefas.

Heed my words.

Non lta udeas,

srpens callidssime,

decpere humnum gnus.

Dei ecclsiam prsequi,

dei elctos exctere

et cribrre sicut trticum!

Oh, my god.

What have we done?

I am so sorry.

I didn't realize the truck

was turning at the last minute.

- Jeremy, are you all right?

- Never better.

- Are you sure?

- Way to go, mom.

Haven't even moved in yet,

and you almost killed someone.

And on that note, this is

my lovely daughter Charlotte,

and I'm Julia Larsen,

and I swear

i am a good driver,

but only in Chicago traffic.

Hi, I'm father Donald,

and this is

Dr. Jeremy Miller.

So, doctor,

if you got hurt,

you could've

patched yourself up.

Please, just call me Jeremy.

Uh, mom?

Oh, yeah.

We should catch up

to the truck.

- It was nice to meet you.

- Yes.

Well, welcome to crestwick.

Say, if you want to join us

for service tomorrow morning,

I can introduce you

to some of your new neighbors.

That would be lovely.

Thank you, father.

We just might.

There's something

i haven't seen in a while.

A car?

A lingering eye.

We've missed you on Sundays.

It's been three years, father.

Maybe you'll get used to it.

Jeremy, I know that sometimes

your line of work

constitutes playing god.

That doesn't mean you do it

as well as he does.

He's done a real swell job

so far, remember?

I'm here every Sunday!

He's cute.

You should go for him.

Don't be silly. We just met.

I'm not ready.

Dad left 10 years ago.

I meant we haven't even

unpacked yet.

Hey, guys.

Sorry we lost you.

No worries.

Shall we walk over

the threshold together?


Here it is. All ours.

Great, mom.

College will be here

before you know it.

What am I suppose to do

till then?

Something will come up.


This is the best we could do?

Wait till you see your room.

First door on the right.

Hey, guys, you can bring

that stuff in here.

Eww, gross.



- Sorry.

- Mom!

What's this?

It was in the closet.

Too bad it's not my style.

What else is in there?

Just this old painting.

Ooh. This is our house.

Does that look centered?

Yeah, I guess.

It's okay.

It's okay.

Just a dream.

We have to hurry.

Church starts in 40 minutes.


Come on!

We just moved in.

I don't have to go every Sunday,

but today is important.

We can meet some people.

Just to be sure,

there's no way

i can get out of going?

Father Donald was so kind

to invite us. We're going.

Uh-huh, right.

That's why we're going.

So hurry up.

Look at you,

looking all sharp.

Hello. I was hoping

you'd make it.

Of course.

It's good to see you again.

- Hi, father.

- Hello.

I've already started repenting

for my lead foot.

Speaking of which,

will Dr. Miller be here today?

No. I'm afraid Jeremy hasn't

been to a service in a while.

I think he feels a little weird

coming to a church

where he's seen half

of our congregation

in their underclothes.

Or less.

Wish they mentioned that


Um, his office is

right around the corner though.

Thank you, father.

Listen, I'm sorry.

I have to get ready.

But make sure

you stick around afterwards

'cause there's people

i want to introduce you to.

Of course.

The lord be with you.

May almighty god bless you.

The father, the son,

and the holy spirit.


Go in peace to love

and serve the lord.

Praise be to god.

Thank you.

Have a good day.

- Bye

- bye-bye.

Father, that was

such a wonderful sermon.

Thank you very much.

You've been

such a great comfort to us

since we've moved to town.

You too.

Julia, Charlotte!

I'm sorry. I wanted to introduce

you to Priscilla birchman.

- Hello.

- Hi.

Priscilla and her husband

just moved here as well,

three months ago.

They're looking for a sitter

for their son drew,

so I immediately thought of you,


Would you be available

on Wednesday?

This Wednesday?

Yeah, I'm totally free.

Praise the lord.

We're having some work done

on the house,

including converting one of our

bedrooms to a worship room,

like I mentioned before.

Do you mind if I bring drew

over to you?

Not at all.

Easier for me.

Our address is

666 east mulberry.

No. No, no, no.

It's 966 east mulberry road,

right on the edge of town.

Oh, great.

I'm sorry. Would you excuse me

just one second?

I will be right back.

Okay, then. We'll see you

at 6:
00 on Wednesday.

Sounds great.

Look at that.

Here one day, you already

have a babysitting gig.

I know.

I wonder what they pay here?

If you're lucky,

she'll pay you in chickens.

Here we are.

A little "welcome to

the congregation" gift.

Aww. Saint Christopher.

Who do we need

protection from?

Well, I usually give out

virgin Marys,

but I just ran out,

I'm afraid.

Well, it's beautiful, father.

Thank you.




Charlotte, what are you doing...

did you call?

I thought I heard something.

Don't sneak up on me.

Sorry. Guess we're even now.

I'm gonna start the movie.

You almost done?

Yeah. Let me just say bye

to Jessie.

Tell her hi.

What's that around your neck?

Oh, nothing.

- It looks so ugly.

- I know, right?

Hey, I gotta go.

Movie night with mom.

I'll catch you online

tomorrow, okay?

Okay. Tell her hi.
